LA Code: 

('Minglish' is a combination of 'Media' and 'English')

Students will study texts (written and film) through the lens of both Media Studies and English, with a focus on NCEA Level One standards in those areas.

Students will be able to select their own English or Media Studies assessment to complete in the latter stages of the term, dependent on where their interests lie and what levels they are most likely to achieve. A list of Media Studies standards can be found here and English standards here.

Last term, the class sampled a range of texts, and focused on 'K-PAX'. This term, the class will look at 'Scythe'. It is highly advised that students should have their own copy of the text, and have read the first 25% of the book before starting the term.

Disclaimer: This'll be a device-free class. We even go so far as to place our phones on the table at the front each lesson! If you simply must be taking selfies, watching TikToks or on instagram, this is not the class for you.
